    Thanks. The pigment is made from dust gathered from the surface of Mars. The color from Saturn is really nice also but the stuff from Uranus is crap. :roll: :lol:

    Are you sure the pigment is from Mars?........It MIGHT be from Uranus, it seems to Klingon very well!

    :lol: :lol: :lol: It just wouldn't be a proper 'Space Bike Build' without at least one 'Klingons on Uranus' bit of humor, now would it? :D I hope this paint job has a better Klingon factor than the last bike I did. It was very humid in my garage the only day I had available to paint. I could scrape it off with my thumbnail.

    Baby! Baby! I have decided to change the craft's name to JET SCREAMER!
    Did a bit more paint work today. I added the silver. I still have to pin stripe it between colors. I'm thinking black or white. leaning towards black. I also have the chaingaurd sand blasted and ready for paint.

    Beautiful.
    What a great frame!
    A very comfortable looking stance.

    The paint is great too.

    This is the seat I'll be using. It is on its way as I write this. Can't wait to get it. I need some grips to match if anyone has some.

    Here are the wheels and tires I'll be using. There Araya 26" x 1-3/8" hoops laced to a Bendix 70 hub. The front hub is German. The tires actually have a silver reflective strip that should work nice with the silver accents. Just say no to fat tires! :D Don't get me wrong, there cool. I just like doing things that are different.

    I got both the tires and wheels from a girls 70's Columbia (which also had a brooks matress saddle on it) I picked up on the CL for $20. The wheels were a little wavy at first but there just fine now. The hub inards are cleaned, bagged and ready for installation. The tires are almost new.
